Me and my husband were in Residence Inn Fairfax Merrifield in October 2011. The hotel is very clean with comfortable rooms. You feel like you are at home. Special thanks to reception guys, they were very nice and helpful. I really spent the special days in this hotel. Thank you so much. I recommend the hotel to everyone.

I stayed here to be close to a metro station for an event in DC. The price was super good and probably half the price of a comparable property in DC. It was right around the corner (little walkway path) to a Starbucks, Grevey's sports bar (good food) and a couple of other stores (CVS and Asian places to eat).... More

This hotel was our (me, my wife and son) base camp for vacation to Washington D.C. which is within a few minutes drive from the hotel. The check-in was smooth and fast coupled with extremely pleasing behavior of the reception staff. There is ample parking space. The room we stayed in had a very decent layout. The room we stayed...

I stayed here nine nights on business. I did not like the layout of my room which had the bed facing the entry door at an angle with no dividing wall or door in between. This felt neither cozy or private. Further, I am not a light sleeper but I was awakened on multiple nights by noises from either the... More

For the price (which is usually well below the other Marriotts in the area), this is a very good Residence Inn. Customer Service has always been top notch & the location is a short drive (5 minutes) to the Dunn Loring metro (at which a Courtyard Marriott is present) and basically adjacent to a strip mall that contains a Starbucks,...

stayed there for a night while traveling with a youth soccer team. Check in and out was easy and quick, they accommodated my request for non first floor room. Center court with outdoor furniture, BBQ, pool (closed due to time of year) as well as a tennis and basketball court. Getting there was easy, convenient access to 495. Shopping center... More

I dont know where the people reviewing this hotel usually stay, but this was just plain disappointing. Positives: It wasn't the worst hotel stay, but I definitely don't see what others were seeing. - The service was one of the good aspects, but it doesn't stand out. Example - the night desk clerk offered us another room when we complained... More

We stayed with our 2 preschool kids for 1 month on relocating to the US. Overall we had a good stay but the 2 bed apartment was small by any standard and the decor and finishings tired. The service was v good though and the location was great for what we wanted to do. The daily breakfast buffet is good... More
